Lava Rising (rewrite!) Minecraft Data Pack

Battle it out in the well-known challenge of Minecraft, but the Lava Rises. Get time to prepare in the beginning stages before lava begins to engulf the world from the bottom to the top, who will come out victorious in the final battle? You have 1 life, once you die, you're out and left to spectate the game.

Once the game begins, you have a 60s starter period where PvP is disabled. After this, you have (by default) a 30m grace period to gather resources, gear up, and prepare for the battle. Once the grace period is over, the lava begins to rise from the bottom of the world to the top.

This datapack has recently received a new rewrite from the ground up, including many changes and improvements. If you have any issues or feature requests, leave them on PMC or Github!

If you are running your event on 1.17 and below, ensure you set legacy (in global) to 1. This ensures the height limit is set back down to pre-1.18.

/scoreboard players set legacy global 1

Gather some players together and when you're ready, run function lavarising:start and the game will begin. The game status will now appear on the bossbar at the top of the screen. Once the main period beings, the world border will have shrunk to 160 blocks and the lava will begin rising from y-64 to y316.

All settings can be easily customised in-game using the setup flow.

It seems really well made and probably works really well but I can't seem to change anything in the configuration menu once I load in even though I have op. I was using 1.20.2 It was probably that.

Hey, love the datapack! I was just curious if there was anyway to change the location of the lava rising instead of it being centered at spawn. Also, there is a glitch where some of the time, once the grace period ends, the lava does not go up and the boss bar is blank and say that the lava is at y:blank.

How difficult would it have been to have made a toggle for minimum players?
In fact it would've been EASIER for you to make this without coding in an unnecessary requirement to have multiple players.
The saddest part is that I found this only a couple of weeks after Mojang made it impossible to run any alt accounts.
I've been trying to find a world download, or a datapack, or whatever, to do a lava rises thing, for two hours.

Is there any way to start the game again after I already finished one in the same world?

uh well the data pack isn't exactly designed for that as it permanently replaces blocks with the lava. however, you could technically do it like this (in theory):

- run function lavarising:defaults
- run tp @e[​tag=riser,limit=1] X -64 Y (replacing X and Y with the new coordinates you want)
- run worldborder center X Y (ditto, same as above)
- then teleport yourself to those coordinates
- and hope for the best..?

like i said, this functionality wasn't exactly planned for so sorry.

in my opinion it would be better to create a new world for the intended and tested experience.
